Yvonne's Liver Transplant Journey - chapter four part two

Yvonne talks about 'The two Es' (exercise and eating) and a few complications

Exercise: even moving aroud was initially difficult but physiotherapists helped to get Yvonne mobilized and negotiating stairs in preparation for retruning home. Yvonne talks about the importance of being mobile following transplant.

Eating: all about eating and drinking, touching on hospital food with a real treat at the end. Can't beat a home cooked Sunday roast, wherever you are when you eat it!

Complications: Yvonne covers complications following her surgery and being immunosuppressed: oral thrush, herpes simplex (cold sores), cytomegalovirus, pleural effusion and a partially collapsed lung.

 

It is great to see the progress Yvonne has made and how well she looks when recording this video compared to the pre-transplant chapters.
